  • Do they actually hurt, or are they just really uncomfortable? If they are just uncomfortable then they are likely BH, if they actually hurt, then you need to give your OB a call.

  • How long have they been coming & going? (how many hours?)
    Are they getting stronger & closer?
    How long does each one last (20 seconds, 60 seconds?)

    I don't think you need to call in until you have established what's going on.

    Use this timer and time them. If you are having them 3-5 minutes apart, then go to the L&D.
